Both grandfathers that I knew (long story, but there was at least one other) served during the Second World War. Both grandmothers worked in munitions factories at the same time. They’re gone now, but never far from my thoughts, especially today.
You may know that in addition to being an author and an editor I am a trained military historian. I’ve been incredibly fortunate to have traveled overseas several times with veterans to visit the battlefields with them. It seems appropriate today to share a couple of photos from those trips.
